A CSN Store Giveaway, and Fellow foodie Bites #7

Hello there friends! Today I have something exciting for you! I was contacted by CSN stores (which is made up of over 200 online stores!), and they are offering a $35 gift certificate to one of my readers! I took some time to check out what they have to offer, as well as browse through a few of their online stores. There is SO much to choose from! Check out this site for a cool bar stool, this one for an overwhelming selection of everything I have ever wanted for my kitchen (including a vita-mix...drool!), and this one to find your way to all of their different stores! Online shopping is WAY too much fun!

Want to enter this giveaway?
- Just leave me a comment on this post, telling me which CSN item you are drooling over (it'll be hard to choose just one!)
- Make sure you are a "follower" of Ravenous Rowie

That's it! The only unfortunate bit is that you must live in the U.S. or Canada. This giveaway will close on Thursday, October 21st. On that day I'll randomly select a winner! I hope you guys like this giveaway! It's all for you!

And now, here's another installment of tastyness from lots of the wonderful blogs that I follow. I always fully intend to try out all of these recipes, and usually only manage a few. But at least I have this list to remind me! Here goes.

Fellow Foodie Bites
I'll start off with this sweet potato enchilada recipe, because I already managed to make it! These enchiladas are amazingly good! And don't be afraid of the sweet potato, the sweetness and texture make this a winner!

Here is a recipe using kelp noodles, which I had never heard of before. I'll be looking for these at my local natural foods store next time I go!

With Chocolate Covered Katie vegan desserts abound. This vegan peanut butter cup pie makes me drool!

I have always wanted to make real caramels, and this seems like the perfect recipe! These might end up in my holiday gift baskets!

Butternut squash and pumpkin recipes are popping up everywhere in the blogosphere these days. I found butternut squash and apple soup, butternut squash ravioli, pumpkin pancakes, a butternut squash smoothie (which I have actually tried, and LOVED!), and pumpkin spiced nutty granola.

To continue the Fall feeling here's a beautiful apple tart tatin, turnip potato fritters, cinnamon crumble bread, and some whole wheat sweet potato muffins.

Comfort foods are abounding as the weather is turning cooler, and I start craving heartier foods. This Moroccan vegetable stew sounds like the perfect thing for a rainy day. These garlic knot rolls would probably be amazing with the stew!

What? Time for dessert? OK! I'd never say no to dessert! This chocolate chili tofu pudding sounds so intriguing, and I do have some silken tofu lurking in my fridge! Or how about some 3 minute vegan maple oatmeal cookies? YUM! And finally, this decadent show stopper, the no-bake tiramisu cheesecake! I am dying to make this one!!!

Hope you guys find something fun and new to try out in your kitchens! Happy cooking!
